5 Tips for Your Reno Project
- Protect your health. Before conducting any building demolition or home renovation there is a legal requirement to have a qualified person identify any hazardous materials, such as asbestos or lead containing products. This is known as a Hazardous Materials Survey. The survey identifies of any hazardous items in the house so that they can be safely managed by the homeowner/contractor. Any identified hazardous materials can then be managed safely and the remaining waste can come to Hartland landfill under clean waste disposal permit.
- Learn more about special handling and disposal requirements (eg. lead painted items and asbestos containing materials). Note – Drywall contaminated with asbestos is accepted at the Hartland landfill only if accompanied by a Hazardous Materials Survey or other record or testing.
- Be prepared. Check what items are banned from disposal at Hartland landfill. For example, concrete, metal and recyclables are banned from disposal at Hartland.
- Reduce waste. Visit myrecyclopedia.ca for information on reuse and recycle options for items such as wood waste, drywall and aluminum framed windows.
- Plan ahead. Confirm if you need a disposal permit to ensure your remaining waste items will be accepted at the landfill.
